AGC Supports Tripartite Initiative’s Recommendations for Action
AGC has announced its support of a June 2004 report by the Construction Users Roundtable Tripartite Initiative setting forth recommendations for action on critical issues facing the construction industry.
AGC is a member of the Tripartite Initiative and played an integral role in establishing the recommendations, along with project owners in the Construction Users Roundtable (CURT), other national contractor associations, and unions affiliated with the AFL-CIO’s Building and Construction Trades Department.
The Tripartite Initiative was established about two years ago to seek meaningful ways of improving the North American construction industry through labor-management collaboration. The report includes detailed recommendations on eliminating unnecessary extended overtime, reducing absenteeism, and avoiding work disruptions. It sets forth separate steps to be taken by owners, contractors, and unions with regard to each of these economically important issues. AGC encourages chapters and labor-management groups to implement the recommendations at the local level.
